Steve talked about the iPhone fairly early in the keynote this morning (which is still going on).  Here’s the main iPhone news so far:

  • 4 million iPhone sold in its first 200 days – wow.
  • Average 20,000 per day
  • iPhone has got 19.5% of U.S. SmartPhone market (2nd behind RIM)
  • New software available TODAY for the iPhone (update later presumably): Maps with location, Webclips, Customize home screen, SMS multiple people
  • SMS multiple people = check, big wish list itemAddToHomeScreen1
  • Maps with location looks very cool, just as expected
  • Webclips = bookmark a web page on the home screen, but it even will remember where you zoomed / panned to on the page
  • Jiggly icons to re-arrange them
  • Can have up to 9 Home screens and flick between them as with Springboard hack
  • Software changes just about all as revealed in the leaked 1.1.3 firmware videos

What’s NOT mentioned yet:

  • No early SDK
  • No Copy & Paste (why???)
  • No MMS

Hopefully / maybe he’ll talk more about iPhone later, but that’s about it for now.  Presumably the 1.1.3 firmware update will appear later today.  Worth giving up 3rd party apps for?
